Peak District Wanderings

Well Saturday's plan was to go and visit the great little farmers market at Bakewell and have a nice lunch out.
The plan didn't quite work out, due to Bakewell show being next week the farmers market had been brought forward by a week thus we were a week late like quite a few people who were asking where it was.
Oh well at least we had a nice lunch out.
So plan B was put into action and I don't mean the music chap (his CD was sitting at home), first port of call was Derbyshire Bridge always a scenic part of the moors and can hold some good birds. In the car park was a mixed flock of Blue/Great Tits and adult and juvenile Willow Warblers, plus what I thought were two Tree Pipits that put in a very brief show.

From here it was over to Dane Bower Quarry, a nice little spot were you can just sit back and enjoy the view and the birds.
Here I managed to add Meadow Pipit, Wheatear, Wren and Linnet.
